  1. A HIGH-EFFICIENCY TECHNIQUE FOR STEAMFLOODING DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS

    SBC: Carbotek Inc            Topic: N/A

    A STEAMFLOODING/STEAM GENERATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED FOR DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS. THIS CONCEPT MINIMIZES THE DOWNHOLE HEAT LOSSES, IMPROVES RELIABILITY AND REDUCES THE COST OF STEAM GENERATION. ITS FEATURES WILL MAKE STEAMING OF VERY DEEP WELLS (BELOW 7500 FEET) TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE, AND WILL IMPROVE THE ECONOMICS OF SHALLOWER WELL STEAMFLOODING. THIS NOVEL CONCEPT SUPPLIES HEAT ...

  3. Acoustic Smart Cement for Well Integrity Diagnostics

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 19b

    Cementing is an integral part of well construction, providing the seal, protection, and support for the casing to maintain barriers that isolate the well.Wells can experience integrity failure due to structural instability in cemented regions due to subsidence and compaction caused by reservoir depletion over the lifetime of the well.Increased knowledge of cement placement, integrity, and conditio ...

  4. Additive Manufacturing of BWR Lower Tie Plates and other Fuel Assembly Components

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: 30g

    Metallic 3D printing of nuclear fuel assembly components has the potential to remove unwanted cost, waste, and time from the fabrication process.In addition to the direct manufacturing benefits, design engineers can create fuel assembly components that increase the performance of nuclear fuel assemblies with features that were not manufacturable a few years ago.Because of the reduced build time, e ...

  5. A Multi-channel Radiation-tolerant, Low-power, High-speed, and Resolution Analog-to-Digital Converter for Nuclear Physics Detectors

    SBC: TallannQuest LLC            Topic: 28b

    Cost-effective and power-efficient radiation tolerant semiconductors are needed in various harsh environments, such as particle detectors, communication satellites, high-altitude avionics and medical imagining equipment. These include amplifiers, voltage regulators, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital logic circuitry. However, radiation-tolerant high-speed ADCs currently cost more than ...

  6. An Energy Internet Platform for Transactive Energy and Demand Response Applications

    SBC: BEMCONTROLS, LLC            Topic: 12c

    For over a century, the structure of the electric utility business has been a supplier driven model with consumers receiving and paying for electricity without any participation in how the electricity is produced, transmitted, or consumed.However, advances in renewable energy technologies (e.g., PV panels), battery storage, smart devices, as well as financing models have given rise to prosumers - ...

  7. Boron Nitride NaNotube Vibration Damping for SRF Structures

    SBC: BNNT, LLC            Topic: 17e

    Our Phase I SBIR results show that BNNT provides viscoelastic vibration damping at 2 K and 4 K. Consequently, BNNT can be utilized to significantly enhance the performance of Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) structures used for particle accelerators. SRF structures typically operate close to absolute zero temperature and are sensitive to microphonics that create length oscillations in the acc ...

  8. CAD-Integrated Web-Based Building Performance Simulation Platform

    SBC: Ladybug Tools LLC            Topic: 09c

    Today’s building energy modeling practice is highly fractured between different simulation engines, Computer Aided Design (CAD) interfaces, and computing resources.While preferences for these fractured components vary between professions and individuals, one principle is unanimously agreed upon: a strong, flexible, and programmable connection between these three categories of software is needed ...

  9. Coal-Core Composites for Low Cost, Light Weight, Fire-Resistant Panels and Roofing Materials

    SBC: Semplastics EHC LLC            Topic: 18c

    Two main problems are targeted by the proposed work: (1) the underutilization of coal, a valuable natural resource, has led to a catastrophic drop in employment within the coal industry ecosystem in specific geographic areas in the country; and (2) the need within the insurance-driven roof replacement market for a suitable, light weight, low cost, high durability roofing material.These problems wi ...
